ISLAMABAD : Large protests took place against blasphemous sketches in the federal capital on Friday, with protesters marching towards the French Embassy and pelting stones at the resisting police officials.
According to details, a large number of people took part in the Islamabad protest. Protesters inside Islamabad’s red zone moved towards the French Embassy after removing the containers deployed to block their way at Aabpara Chowk. Police used tear gas shells to push back the protesters but without much success.
Routes leading to the French Embassy were sealed off by Police but protesters either climbed onto the containers or pushed them out of their way. More police personnel have been deployed in the red zone to control the developing situation.
